Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy in Bradenton, FL

Aging can be a scary prospect. In addition to the general stress and pains of growing old, we go through a number of physical and mental changes. For women, menopause is a major concern while men deal with andropause and low testosterone.

Many age-related issues are the result of hormonal imbalance. Your body has a complex collection of glands called the endocrine system. Each of these glands generates crucial hormones, such as testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, cortisol, thyroid hormones and neuroendocrine hormones like serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine to name a few.. Excessive or reduced levels of these hormones can wreak havoc on your system.

What is Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

What is BHRT

BHRT is a way to fight aging and balance your hormones. It does this with the use of chemically and biologically identical hormones. This makes BHRT a better choice than conventional hormone replacement therapy, which uses synthetic hormones.

The natural hormones used in BHRT can be administered with a number of delivery methods. They include:

  • Pills
  • Injections
  • Pellets
  • Creams
  • Gels
  • Skin patches

Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy generally falls in to three categories: BHRT for Women, BHRT for Men and Transgender transitioning and maintainance.

Low testosterone symptoms include:

  • Low sex drive
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle loss
  • Depression
